US: Russia deal, Iran oil not focus of 2+2 talks

Sep 05, 2018 12:30 IST

India's defence deal with Russia and oil from Iran would be part of the 2+2 dialogue, but not the primary focus, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said. Secretary Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis are headed to India for the maiden 2+2 talks on Thursday with Sushma Swaraj and Nirmala Sitharaman. Of India, Pompeo said "We have a true strategic partner who, frankly, is our only major defence partner"
